(aka: Ligularia tussilaginea 'Argentea') Farfugium japonicum 'Argentum' is considered the most beautiful and prized member of the genus farfugium. The large glossy green leaves to 8" round are bordered with a wide, but variable, creamy white edge that often streaks into the middle of the leaf. Clumps of Farfugium 'Argentum' are topped with yellow daisy-like flowers on 30" stalks in October and November. Slightly moist, but well-drained organic soils give the best results.
